Sarud lies on the shore of Lake Tisza in Heves County.
The community’s name has been present in written documents since the era of King Béla the fourth. In 1888 flood uncovered the remaining is of a bronze age cemetery.
In 1973, during the construction of the dam of River Laskó workers found an ancient burial ground.
The area was quite favourable for herders because of the proximity of Lake Tisza. This very fact made it possible that the area was inhabited long before Hungarians came into the Carpathian basin.
The area attracted farmers and the flood basin ensured that farms had the best possible soil in 100 km.
In the two stormy centuries of Hungarian history (XVI-XVII), people often fled from the village. But in 1946, it had its own teacher, Ábel András.
In the 1880s and narrow gauge railroad was built.
Since the village lies on the banks of Little River Tisza, it has always been very much affected by floods. The worst was in 1888. The village was washed away by the water and the population fled.
The XX. century brought great development.
The biggest change was brought to the village by the construction of Lake Tisza, creating a true touristic site.
At the beach, you may ride paddle boats, do some canoeing and have fun with slides. There is also a camping, and the boat dock.
If you can get into a boat, the wondrous beauty of flora and fauna emerges.
